The 590-ha-project is currently undergoing several studies and procedures. Yet it is not clear when construction of the power plant will begin nor whether Photon Energy oversees installation of the panels.
A small increase of 2.6 % was recorded in the Central European country last year. The Austrian Photovoltaic Association is still calling for an adjustment of the state´s Green Electricity Act to unleash the limited PV extension.
Quality issues: A solar power plant investor finds out that neither the warranty of the EPC, nor the warranty of the module manufacturer, was adequate. It would be good to clarify in advance what should happen in the event of a serial defect, and how the term “serial defect” should be defined at all.
As costs are driven down by the economies of scale and improvements in manufacturing and deployments, new technologies are finding their way to widespread adoption, as seen in the case of solar modules. In order to facilitate the prediction of costs and outcomes for new energy storage technologies, a team of researchers from Imperial College London has developed a tool to help policy makers and investors make informed decisions.
Data from the China Photovoltaic Industry Association (CPIA) reveals a 25.9% rise in solar module production over the first six months of the year, reaching 34 GW. Q2 utilization rates stood at 85%, data shows.
The power provider has entered into a partnership with AMP Solar, a Canada-based solar developer, to offer storage solutions for its Ontario customers.
Swiss PV equipment supplier Meyer Burger has received a further order for its MAiA PERC production platform SiNA cell coating system from an existing customer based in Asia. The combined contract for both technologies amounts to CHF 22 million ($23.2 million).
The Sa Caseta PV plant has received the status of public utility project from the archipelago’s Directorate for Energy and Climate Change.
The Minister of Energy of the Flanders hopes that another 6.4 million solar modules can be installed in the region under his mandate until 2020.
China Power Clean Energy Development’s (CP Clean Energy) total power generation fell 10.67% year on year to 4,659,796.77 MWh in the first half of 2017. However, the completion of several solar projects — as well as improvements related to the PV curtailment rate in China — helped to balance out the declines.
